Western Astrology Vs Vedic Astrology

Both are different to a great extent. But at the same time, both are correct in their own way. There are many ways to reach the truth. I will just tell you the basic difference, so that you can form your own unbiased opinion. As it is always better to get educated on a subject rather than letting someone else color your judgment.

The interpretations in Vedic astrology are most often more precise than in Western astrology. Western astrology emphasizes the psychological nature of the individual, but it lacks reliability for predicting future cycles and events. In contrast, Vedic astrology gives more focus to understanding when certain events are likely to take place. Vedic astrology gives you a better view of your karmic tendencies and when such tendencies are likely to manifest for you. In Vedic astrology, the time of different life events are shown through a detailed system of planetary time cycles, called 'dashas'. But, there is no such corresponding method in Western astrology.

I have also seen Western astrologers resorting to Vedic astrology because of its greater scope, depth and accuracy for predicting the future. Still I will say, before choosing any of them, do research both. That would help you choose what is the best for you.
